Course now available on Udemy.com
In October 2015 I began the process of creating a comprehensive SEO for WordPress training course for Udemy.com. I launched the course on November 28, 2015 and have already had over 1200 students enroll so far. The feedback so far has been amazing.
I created the course to help people learn SEO best practices through explanations and included specific workflows that are involved with SEO projects. The course lasts about 2.5 hours and features over 40 video lectures, PDFs that can be used as SEO cheatsheets, and a discussion board for follow-up questions.
One great thing about Udemy’s training platform is that when you purchase a course, you have a lifetime access to the course. I decided to take advantage of this, and designed the course in sections with short videos that people can reference in the future as they are working on different websites or blogs. It’s also great because I plan to release new lectures and updated existing lectures over time, so it’s nice to know that past students will get immediate access to those lectures as I release them.
Below is the course description and a link to purchase.
During this SEO for WordPress online training course you will learn how to optimize your website using on-site and off-site SEO best practices.
This isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme that promises #1 rankings overnight. Actually, it’s the opposite. It is a tried-and-true approach to SEO I use with my clients.
Don’t waste your time with other SEO for WordPress courses that are outdated and only focus on simple concepts. This course contains comprehensive strategies and techniques for ranking highly in organic search. It’s much more than a simple demonstration of Yoast’s SEO for WordPress plugin.
This course features overview lectures in each section where I break down SEO concepts into layman’s terms to help you understand how search engines work and why certain tasks are important. Then, you will see examples of best practices using free SEO tools and WordPress plugins available at no cost to you. Plus, you will get recommendations for professional tools that will save you time and money.
I have been executing SEO campaigns and developing custom WordPress solutions for over 6+ years. Now, I have spent countless hours preparing training video lectures, slides and reference materials for Udemy so that you will fully understand how search engines work and how to improve your search engine rankings.
